A few of our favourite tools

In a previous webinar, we presented three of our favourite command line tools. Today, we will introduce other tools we find really useful in our daily workflow:

lazygit: a wonderful terminal UI for Git,

bat: a great syntax highlighter,

ripgrep: a fast alternative to grep,

fd: a /really/ fast alternative to find,

pass: a command line password manager.

Along the way, I will use a few other neat command line tools such as hyperfine — for sophisticated benchmarking — and diff-so-fancy — which makes your diffs a lot more readable.

For the Emacs users among you, we will finish the workshop with two Emacs utilities:

TRAMP: a remote file access system,

Helm: a "framework for incremental completions and narrowing selections".
